Greek Key Cap - "One More Try"

Greek Key Cap - Stranding Project

Well, it's finished. I got some suggestions on how to finish it off with the flat top. Basically divided it into 10 sections of 9 needles each and decreased each section every other row.

"The Last Knit" video

This video actually makes me want to cry. I'm not sure what to think about it. It's beautiful to watch...
